Tottenham Hotspur are looking at a deal for a Premier League superstar who started life at Arsenal.
The Lilywhites have started the season brightly with two wins and a draw from their opening three fixtures after the marquee sale of Harry Kane – another player who was in the Gunners' Hale End setup once upon a time. Tottenham are still looking to strengthen ahead of the season to come, despite bringing in reinforcements across the side.
While a move for Brennan Johnson is still being pursued, however, another move has presented itself which could set the club back a lot of money.
The England international has enjoyed a rapid rise through the English pyramid in recent seasons and recovered from serious injuries to emerge as the Eagles' talisman post-Wilfried Zaha. He has something in common with Kane though, in that they were both released from Arsenal.

Now, he could be worth as much as £50m with Palace signing him on a five-year deal in 2020 for just £17m. The south Londoners are unlikely to want to entertain an offer before the deadline, given that they would have to replace him.
Brennan Johnson will reportedly cost £50m, should Spurs wish to make the signing.
Eze is valued at €40m by Transfermarkt.
